'This book is a not-so-small joy in itself.'NIGELLA LAWSON'Parkinson has the gift of making you look with new eyes at everyday things.

The perfect daily diversion.'JOJO MOYES'Always funny and frank and full of insight, I absolutely love Parkinson's writing.'DAVID NICHOLLS'I loved this book . . . Parkinson's writing transports you to unexpected places of joy and comfort . . . these pages contain happiness.'MARINA HYDE'The twenty-first century feels a lot more bearable in Parkinson's company.'CHARLOTTE MENDELSONDrawn from the successful Guardian column, these everyday exultations and inspirations will get you through dismal days. Hannah Jane Parkinson is a specialist in savouring the small pleasures of life.

She revels in her fluffy dressing gown ('like bathing in marshmallow'), finds calm in solo cinema trips, is charmed by the personalities of fonts ('you'll never see Comic Sans on a funeral notice'), celebrates pockets and gleefully abandons a book she isn't enjoying.

Parkinson's everyday exaltations - selected from her immensely successful Guardian column - will utterly delight. FEATURES BRAND NEW MATERIAL'A compendium of delights.'OBSERVER'Delightful . . . a love letter to those little moments of bliss that get us through the daily grind.'RED
